Which one to use, a toggle or a checkbox? Here’s how we decide.
Use a switch for binary settings when changes are instantaneous upon state change.
Use a checkbox when users need to take extra steps before changes happen. If the user needs to make another selection, such as selecting Continue or Next to apply changes, use a checkbox.
Use checkboxes when users can select multiple items.
Switch toggle should always be used in conjunction with a label. It is difficult for color blind users to distinguish choices or access information based on colors alone.
